POLICE hunting a man who sexually assaulted a woman in front of her boyfriend in Subway have released a CCTV image.

Between 1am and 1.30am on Friday February 21 a woman, aged in her 20s, was in Subway in Old Christchurch Road, Bournemouth with her boyfriend and a friend. The woman was approached by two men, one of whom began making sexual comments toward her.

The man then went to buy a sandwich, but began to film the victim on his phone from across the shop. He then approached the victim from behind and forcibly grabbed her bottom. After a few seconds he let go and moved away.

Police Constable Russell Thomas, of Bournemouth police, said: “The victim was understandably left shaken by this incident and I am appealing to any witnesses or anyone with information to please contact us.

“I am also keen to hear from anyone who may recognise the man from the CCTV.”

Information to Dorset Police on 101, quoting occurrence number 55200028314, or the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111.
